Every year my extended family does a "secret santa" gift exchange. Each person draws another person at random and then gets a gift for them. At first, none of my siblings were married, and so the draw was completely random. Then, as people got married, we added the restriction that spouses should not draw each others names. This restriction meant that we moved from using slips of paper on a hat to using a simple computer program to choose names.
